Artist's Description

Portland Bill Lighthouse, and Trinity monument, Dorset, UK.

Canon powershot s90

Layered with my own texture in Elements then painted in DAP in realism mode with expressive bias.

Portland Bill and Chesil Beach are the graveyards of many vessels that failed to reach Weymouth or Portland Roads. The Portland Race is caused by the meeting of the tides between the Bill and the Shambles sandbank about 3 miles SE. Strong currents break the sea so fiercely that from the shore a continuous disturbance can be seen.

Portland Bill Lighthouse guides vessels heading for Portland and Weymouth through these hazardous waters as well as acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.
